Fairfax, Va. - Evelina Sloboh opened up the 2020 Track and Field season at the George Mason Patriot Games on Saturday, Jan. 25th. She competed in the 60 meter dash and placed second at 7.83 seconds, behind Kiana Stallworth from George Mason who finished in 7.74 seconds.
New Head Coach Greg Lambert said, "I always say any meet that you can leave from healthy is good meet. I think with any new program there is learning curve between Coach and athlete. This weekend was a clear case. The main focus was seeing how Evelina competed and prepared for competition. If nationals was today she would be in….but the goal is to be in the hunt for a national title. For the most part I'm pleased with where we have started this season. At this point in the year we just got to keep building and moving forward. The rest of the team opens up next week and I'm looking forward seeing their starting point. Go Wesley! "
The rest of the team will open up next weekend at the UMES Invitational in Princess Anne, Maryland.
